Critic Reviews for New Life

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Although it aspires to be a kind of latter-day "Love Story," the rote, overly earnest drama "New Life" exists largely on the surface.

October 27, 2016 | Full Review…

The film's press release mentions both The Notebook and The Fault in Our Stars in its first sentence. Add the word 'Christian' and you have both an elevator pitch and a summary.

February 14, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A familiar story about a family torn apart by illness. The voiceover is unnecessary, though Erin Bethea is impressive as Ava.

December 1, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Heartwarming message, but romantic drama falls flat.

October 28, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

When was the last time a movie romance gave you a lump in your throat? Here ya go!

October 28, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The hope-infused family drama New Life possesses a huge heart with its arteries seriously clogged by narrative cholesterol in the form of gooey voice-over narration.
